Intimidation. It's your main form of weaponry while facing the heroes, because it gives you full control. When your enemies fear you, they are more likely to make fatal mistakes.

Your Epic Dark Armour is as dark as your intentions, hardened by the evil magic your subjects provide. As you withdraw your sword, sizing up the quivering soldier who feels brave enough to stand against you, you begin to laugh. This will be a very brief fight--if you can even call it that. The little man looks barely strong enough to hold up his hammer.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Floating Elbow are a pair of couters designed to protect the elbows from lucky sword blows. Sculpted to provide the most protection to the entire elbow--including the sides and the top of the forearms--you can depend on this armour to keep you swinging. Overlapping plates provide comfort and flexibility, allowing great mobility on the battlefield.

Two leather straps are used to keep each of the Floating Elbow in place. Made of 1 mm mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in One Size.
